Estimating the Term Structure of Yield Spreads from Callable Corporate Bond Price Data

Abstract

I extract credit pricing information from the prices of callable corporate debt, by disentangling the components of callable corporate bond prices associated with discounting at market interest rates, discounting for default risk, and optionality. The results include the first empirical analysis, in the setting of standard arbitrage-free term-structure models, of the time-series behavior of callable corporate bond yield spreads, explicitly incorporating the valuation of the American call options. As an application, I consider medium-quality callable issues of Occidental Petroleum Corporation, using a three-factor model for the term structures of benchmark LIBOR-dollar swap rates and for Occidental yield spreads.
